Today, Australian-born and LA-native Anna Lunoe releases her track “Stay Awake” HERE, made with Sleepy Tom via Spinnin’ Deep before heading out on the 10-date Godzilla tour, including performances at Coachella.
The philosophical and invigorating dance track “Stay Awake” is written and co-produced by Anna, saying: “Well me and Sleepy Tom had already made a track called “Pusher” together, and we both still really love that track. We wanted to avoid making something similar to it thematically. We needed to break the formula we had and come at it from a totally different angle as to not be compared or compete with the last one. I came up with the spoken word intro idea one morning that week – just seemed like a fresh concept that I hadn’t seen done for a long time and that can be really epic when done right! I like starting a collab session with a vocal concept and then just see how things go. It made sense to make that idea with Sleepy Tom too, because our dj sets are both more on the house tip, and when you play big festivals with lots of trap sets before you, it helps to have something bold and powerful to reset people’s brains when you start. That was the concept for this track and I’m so happy with how it turned out! We made the track together at his studio in Vancouver after we played a gig there on the HYPERHOUSE tour. We had finished the night going back to back with our pals Dombresky, Troy Boi and Madeaux, it was so fun. Our brains were filled with the spirit of good club music and the honest energy from the night before and the track came directly out of that energy! We were also really inspired by a new Baauer track we heard earlier that day – that’s gotta be mentioned cos he is a G.”
And Sleepy Tom adds: “Anna and I wrote this start to finish in my Vancouver studio. We wanted to make a song that would be great to play at the beginning of our DJ sets. One that would hit the reset button on the crowd and lure them in, before bringing the energy back.”
Anna Lunoe’s Godzilla tour starts on April 7th in Washington DC and will take her to the prestigious Coachella festival for the second time before heading to SF, Portland, Arizona, New York, Philadelphia, Boston and ends in Chicago on May 12th.
Her touring schedule has been hectic to say the least; from a debut tour when she started living in USA, opening for The Weekend, to being the first solo female performer on the main stage at EDC Las Vegas last year and last month’s Australian tour with Diplo and Nina Las Vegas.
On top of producing music and DJing, she curates live-recorded “Anna Lunoe presents: HYPERHOUSE” each week which airs worldwide on Apple Music’s Beats1 Radio. Her weekly guests have been artists such as Diplo, Jamie XX, Dillon Francis, Krewella, Jai Wolf, etc. and championing the newest electronic music.

Phantom Boy Announces Spanish Song “Celina” Taken From His Upcoming Album
“Celina”, the newest Spanish song from Phantom Boy sounds amazing. The creative Latino artist is releasing this single on August 15th. The good news is that it is taken from his upcoming album, ‘Phantom Boy 2020’. Everything we know so far is that this is the result of a collaborative project with the skillful young Producer Berny Anzola, who has worked in the past with the Grammy Award-winning duo, Chino and Nacho.

Marcus James Touches On A Sensitive Subject With Powerful, Emotive New Tune “Move On”
Marcus James has a knack for creating meaningful dance music, and his latest release “Move On” featuring XYSM is a poignant and masterful exhibition of his signature sound. The track’s theme is the often-stigmatized subject of mental health, bringing to light the depths of loneliness, anxiety, depression and their coping mechanisms in a scenario that is all too familiar for many of his listeners. With XYSM’s signature vocals intermingled with melodic instrumentals and a gently undulating bassline, James takes the track to a deeper level by including personal phone recordings from his own life. “Move On” sends a straight-forward story and message to all those listening: that vulnerability about these feelings is not a topic that should be stigmatized, and that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Marcus James and XYSM previously teamed up on “Ghosts” and “Let Go,” and “Move On” follows James’s last release “Over U” with RYYZN.
“I’m always trying to create a more cohesive world around my music. One of the ways I’ve been doing that is sampling pieces from older tracks of mine and sneaking them into my new songs. Some of the chopped up vocals you hear are actually made from another song of mine in which the singer happened to use the words’ Move On.’ They were sung with a totally different timbre, so I had to change the rhythm and pitch to draw it together in an engaging way.” – Marcus James
Marcus James is breaking down previously uncrossed barriers between the realms of pop-punk, emo and electronic dance music with his unique signature sound. Dubbing it “emo house,” James’s style is an eclectic fusion of the genres that results in radio-friendly and yet tasteful productions. In 2018 he began to build a following for his hybrid music genre, one that eventually grew into millions of streams and thousands of new followers every week. After signing with the Physical Presents last fall, James joins the likes of Felix Cartal, Prince Paris, Bobby Love and more on the label. Keep an eye out for more emo house you can sing to in the shower coming very soon from Marcus James!

Teamworx Deliver Big-Room Dancefloor Track “Louder” With Mr. Sid & George Z
Israeli duo Teamworx has built their signature around energetic, club-friendly tracks, and their new release “Louder” is guaranteed to set dancefloors around the globe on fire. They’ve teamed up with Dutch producer Mr. Sid and newcomer George Z for the new release, which is their 8th on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings. “Louder” is suitable to its name, delivering driving basslines and larger-than-life melodies for a track that is nostalgic for classic big-room, but fine-tuned for the new age of dance music. Teamworx have already teased the track out several times, including at Ultra Korea, to rave reactions from the crowd. “Louder” follows “Losing Control,” and Teamworx’s remix of Nicky Romero and David Guetta’s festival hit “Ring the Alarm.”
Since its founding in 2012, Protocol Recordings has grown from a record label to a truly multi-faceted household brand in electronic music – but they’re still only getting started. Nicky Romero created Protocol to be a place of camaraderie between forward-thinking artists, always daring to break the mold through innovative sounds and the development of emerging artists. Protocol’s ethos has lead to immense success with their family of talent, including eight-time veterans Teamworx. The Israeli exports first exploded onto the scene with Corey James and their track “Make The Crowd Go,” which received massive support from industry heavyweights and is still played by Steve Angello in his live sets. They’ve collaborated with Nicky himself on “Champion Sound” and “Deep Dark Jungle,” as well as remixes for his tracks “Only For Your Love” and “Ring the Alarm.” In 2018, they played at EDC China as well as Protocol’s showcase at ADE, and this summer they performed at Ultra Korea. Keep an eye out for more new music and show announcements from Teamworx coming soon!
